The pump itself is 5 3/4'' so it'd be a tight fit. But should work.

Question

Can this be used with an Electric Pressure washer?

I have a barrel that is filled with rain water. If I submerge the pump in the barrel and connect a garden hose to the pressure washer, will the pump fail if there is not a continuous flow of water? An example is washing a vehicle. If I spray the vehicle first with the pressure washer, wash the hood with a sponge while the pressure washer is idle, then spray again and repeat as necessary, will this pump work for this application?
